You may have noticed that pretty pastels like baby blue, powder pink, lavender, buttercup yellow, which are usually associated with spring, take center stage this fall. These beautiful, feminine colors soften heavy fabrics and lighten up our winter days.
The key to wearing pastels in fall/winter is combining them with familiar dark colors and rich shades like black, brown, burgundy and hunt green.
If you are not ready to commit to this trend, as always, start with accessories, like the baby blue tote spotted on Rosie Huntington-Whiteley here.
In Chinese: 你可能也已经留意到了，那些常在春夏看到的粉嫩的马卡龙色席卷了今年秋冬的T台，像冰蓝、浅粉、淡紫、鹅黄等。这些轻柔的颜色冲淡了毛呢的厚重感，也点亮了萧瑟暗沉的秋冬。

Black leather boots with minimal embellishments, knee-high or slightly above, are such a functional and fashionable piece. They keep our legs warm while instantly polish up any outfit, exuding a cool and authoritative, tough yet sexy mood.
Team them with perfect fit skinny jeans, a chunky sweater and roomy yet eye-catching bag for strolling around the town. When the sun goes down, simply change the sweater to a delicate, feminine silk blouse, grab a classic quilted handbag which doubles as a clutch, and a bold lipstick, you are ready for a hot date or a girls’ night out!
